Major donation to the Nashua Performing Arts Center | News, Sports, Jobs
NASHUA – Nashua Community Arts announced last week that it has received a pledge of $ 1 million for the new Nashua Performing Arts Center, according to board chairman Rich Lannan.
Lannan said Phillip Scontsas, a member of the NCA fundraising team and owner of Sconsas Fine Jewelry on Main Street, was in conversation with the anonymous donor and secured the pledge last week.
“The donor and his family are local, like Nashua, are very civic and are big lovers of the performing arts. They travel to different cities to see shows and are very excited and thrilled to have the opportunity to see shows right here in Nashua, in a brand new state-of-the-art facility ”, said Scontsas.
The announcement was made during a beam signing event hosted by Nashua Community Arts where major donors were able to sign their names on one of the last beams to be erected at the construction site and then gathered at the restaurant Surf for a refresh and an update on the center.
At this event, Lannan also announced that construction of the new center, whose demolition began in January and is now completing steel construction, is on schedule and on budget. “We were fortunate that Harvey Construction, the general manager of the project, put in place purchase contracts for all materials at the start of the year, before the price inflations that we are now experiencing. he commented.
Currently, the scheduled date for completion and key handover to Spectacle Management, the facility’s contract manager, is September of next year.
